Nickelodeon, the only network that puts kids first, launched in 1979 and has grown to become the most-watched television network by kids in the United States and basic cable's number-one network overall. Nickelodeon's "kids first" philosophy is the key element to its business successes, which in addition to television now includes feature films, consumer products, records, online, recreation and publishing. Nickelodeon television programming is seen in more than 86 million households in the United States and 471 million households globally in 161 territories via channels, branded program blocks and international program sales. Nickelodeon operates 29 channels across Africa, Asia and the Pacific Rim, CIS/Baltic Republics, Europe, Latin America and the United States.
On its flagship television network in the United States, Nickelodeon offers an innovative and diverse blend of original series programming, including comedy, adventure, variety, news and game shows created just for kids. Nickelodeon programming also includes a line-up of original animation known collectively as Nicktoons, many of which are produced at the network's state-of-the-art animation studio in Burbank, CA.
In the last several years, Nickelodeon has successfully launched a series of production, merchandising, publishing and pro-social initiatives that are substantially increasing Nickelodeon's presence and impact on children's entertainment worldwide.
